Quick update

Thanks for all the kind words. The town is filled with news satellite trucks;local and national. The CNN crew was sipping coffee at the local Dunkin Donuts. Everywhere you go you see someone standing in front of a camera talking. It's just something I could never have thought I'd see in my quiet little sleepy town.

It's hard to imagine that a trip to the grocery store could put in motion a situation that ends in 3 deaths. Something as simple as driving an expensive car and that car being noticed by 2 career criminals looking for drug money.

We're going ok. A little jumpy. Not sleeping enough. I think it's part of the process to try to put things into perspective and move on. It's too close to disregard yet so random that intellectually I know it'll never happen here again. We didn't even know the family. I can't imagine what their friends, family, and coworks are feeling.

On the knitting front the error on Diamonds on Fire was found and corrected. Then I laid it out for a quick check and found another error 8 rows back. Everything is back on the needles as of last night and hopefully I can get it done next week.

I started blue socks for W. He'll be excited. N asked for green socks so a quick trip on Knitpicks.com should have green socks yarn here next week. I also order The Opinionated Knitter by Elizabeth Zimmermann ..... just to get the free shipping. lol. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

It's so hard to deal with things like that. I lived in Northern Jersey by NYC when 9/11 happened, and it's even harder to begin to move past random acts of violence when the coverage and presence of them is so 24/7. I have you in my prayers, I hope things begin to normalize as soon as it's possible for them to.

Arent the books on Knitpicks also 40% off right now?? I say it was a smart purchase to get a great book AND get free shipping!! You were looking for a deal to save money to buy more yarn later!! I can ALWAYS rationalize a yarn related purchase!! LOL

I think buying something more is totally justified by and for the free shipping. I do that all the time.
